Informing our clients and consumers about longevity and enabling them to make sound financial decisions that improve their lives

Meet Valkyrie

As a life insurance carrier or investor, you help Americans and their families secure their future through life policies and settlements. As expert underwriters, we leverage our experience to inform individual consumers, life insurance, and life settlement clients about medically-based health risks that impact individuals’ day-to-day health journeys.

For us, it’s personal. Back in 2008, our founder found herself figuring out how to help a family member who couldn’t afford much needed long-term care. Getting funds from a life settlement would have been a godsend, but there was no life insurance policy to use. Coming face-to-face with a situation we try to help prevent only reaffirmed our passion and belief in what we do.

Over the past thirty years, we have evaluated, developed underwriting risk assessments for, and audited nearly one million insurance risks. As a woman-owned/minority-owned brand, we are proud of what we’ve achieved over the last 3 decades. Our team of underwriting professionals has an average of twenty years of experience in assessing medical impairments and associated risks in the life settlement and life insurance industries – from mortality, morbidity, and longevity underwriting expertise – to digital-electronic health data insight.
